There is a growing trend for people to create bucket lists
of all the things that they want to do before they literally pass away. This
odd expression is now common on the internet and many people from all walks of
life, including celebrities have started up their own ‘must do’ registers. For
those who are mad about anything to do with team games or activities, a sports
vacation is also taking off in a big way too.
There are many sites on the net where like-minded people can
come together and talk all about their favorite players etc. However, the
specialist ones have ratings so that the enthusiast can fill in a virtual
passport every time they see favored game or two. For this, he will receive
virtual points and then be ‘awarded’ when he meets certain thresholds. Of
course, there is nothing tangible on offer. All he will get is kudos for having
completed ever wish that he has written there.
Some ideas for this register may be following a favorite
team all over the country when they are playing in league matches. Not only
does this give the enthusiast an opportunity to see the team in action, he also
learns about all the places that he will visit en route.
Even the World Cup or the Olympics can be included in this
register and imagine the points to be picked up next year if anyone gets to the
UK for the opening ceremony? In fact, it is events like this that most people
would wish to go see anyway so what better way to do it than with the envy of
everyone who visits the same site?
Closer to home, some people take one month off to visit
certain states and will want to see every game, …

You’ll be more equipped for planning your vacation when you’re all done gathering everyone’s ideas for places to go and things to see.
